Lena Menstrual Cup
- Small: Good for normal flow
- Large: Good for heavy flow
100% recommend trying the Lena cup. I'll take this over tampons any day.
I've only used it a couple of times, it's definitely an adjustment compared to tampons but I am satisfied with the product and happy to have a more sustainable option.
It’s a little strange using a menstrual cup for the first few times, and you definitely have to be comfortable getting up close and personal (and a little messy), but the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. I wish I had started this years ago. It’s much cheaper than pads or tampons and there is no waste for a landfill, which I love. Make sure you boil it before using and after each period (instructions are included for how to do that). I found my cramps were much less than with tampons, except for the first time when I inserted it incorrectly. If it’s hurting, take it out and try again. You shouldn’t feel it really at all. My one wish is that the little tail part was easier to grip. A loop or a flatter tail with a gripping surface would be better. It can be tricky to do it all the first few times, but, once you get the hang of it, it’s great!
We had a little bit of an awkward introduction to each other, but I am excited to be adding this to my routine and subtracting a lot of needless waste.
I have wanted to try a menstrual cup for a while and finally purchased the Lens. It took me a couple of days to get it all worked out but I am so pleased and now I’m wishing I got into it earlier. So much waste avoided and only one cycle in!
Wild Minimalist were great too. This was my first purchase and everything was smooth and positive. I’ll be back!
